The Whisperer in Darkness (2011)

The evocation of a 1930s Universal-styled film is perfectly realised and the film is filled with dread and the threat of cosmic horror. The Whisperer in Darkness has a much slower pace than The Call of Chuthulu but it does reward the patient. The only issue is the CGI creatures at the end; mechanical or stop-motion would have been more effective and better fitted the period but I assume that a limited budget made this impossible.
